Eye of the Optimist-100% Illumination

After a 7-day Waxing Gibbons phase, the moon is visible at its fullest today, November 14. I saw it rising in the eastern sky tonight, and it looked fabulous. Huge and amber coloured, it was partially covered by a film of wispy cloud. Having noticed some post saying that the moon would appear larger than usual, I looked up the moon phase for today and discovered that the moon is shining at its absolute brightest because it is on the opposite side of the Earth from the sun's position.

Maybe the phase of the moon over the weekend contributed to my mixed feelings of a sort of nervousness and apathy for Saturday, but a pleased, self-assured and energetic feeling for Sunday and Monday (today).

Here is information from moongiant.com.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 2016
Tommorow the Moon will be in a Full Moon phase. During a Full Moon the moon is 100% illuminated as seen from Earth and is on the opposite side of the Earth from the Sun. The Moon will be visible throughout the night sky rising at sunset in the east and setting with the sunrise the next morning. The point at which a Full Moon occurs can be measured down to a fraction of a second. The time it takes between full moons is known as a Synodic month and is 29.530587981 days long.
